Bronx lacking building inspectors and funds to keep homes safe, NY Daily News

New York City’s buildings department lacks funds and personnel to respond to Bronx housing violations and maintain safety codes, reports the New York Daily News.

Three district managers of community boards and a councilman in the Bronx charge that the city is neglecting the Bronx when it comes to allocating funds and assigning inspectors to assess building code complaints.

If these complaints are not investigated, the Bronx will be prone to more fires linked to illegal subdivisions for example, the local officials charge.

According to data in the recently released Mayor’s Management Report cited by the Daily News, average response time for nonemergency complaints grew last year.
